I've found a wonderful utility to help search for the pictures based on original picture provided. It's called TinyEye.

The TinEye project is an image search engine that helps to find where your images are displayed in the web.

So if you're ever wondering where else but flickr are your photos 'travelling' around internet without your knowledge and permission (or just curious, how famous you already are ;) ) try TinyEye.

tineye.com/login

For the time being it's in private beta version, so it means you need to be invited. But you can put yourself on invite demand list and you should be able to use it when they grant you an invitation.
I got my invitation after a day, so they're quite fast. I'm not yet allowed to give any invitation to anyone, but if I'll be able and someone wants it, tell me. :)


Of course it's a great utility not only to search if your works has been ripped, but also to find images you want when you search for some famous painting or anything you need. It's mainly the tool for searching similar pictures. So it's not only for copyright violations. ;)

I haven't notice your post earlier - at the moment you can register without invitation, but if you still want one, I can send you, just give me your mail :)

Thanks for this link. I never knew there was a program like this. I looked for my art online, but gladly I did not find it. When I tried it on some of the most talented deviantartists' work, it found some sites (that I think they didn't post their work themselves). The sites didn't sell art and were forums or blogs, but they did not many times give credit for the artist.

If you can give me some insight i'd appreciate it.

I never actively searched for a program like this, but I've always thought it'd be a great idea. I've saved a lot of pictures from DA before I got an account and I'd love to find the artists on DA so I can actually +fav them finally :)
Thanks so much for the link! (I'm waiting right now!)

:iconseawhisper:
SeaWhisper Featured By Owner May 22, 2008
oh yes, I used it in similar way - eg to find artists I see on the web and don't know their nick in dA, so I can add them to watch here :) it seems almost everyone perceive it as copyright violation checking tool, but it tells a lot about problems here, on dA :)
Reply
:iconchartreusecontempt:
ChartreuseContempt Featured By Owner May 22, 2008
Yeah, definitely. It sucks that everyone has to worry about that sort of thing here... Damn DA.
But at least the artists who get their work stolen most will finally have a way to find the art thieves.
I got accepted about 12 hours after my request, for anyone who's wondering about the current wait time, as well.

Is this some kind of image-recognition web search then that doesn't rely on keyword search, but an image as the search field entry instead?
Reply
:iconseawhisper:
SeaWhisper Featured By Owner May 21, 2008
yup, they don't rely on keyword, they analyse pixels of the photo and then use algorithm to find similar, you can read about it in their faq: [link] :)

Awesome, I got my invite last night and I've already found and reported one of my photos stolen here on deviantART! What a co-incidence. Only other place I've found my images were a couple of blogs, which after translation revealed that the poster just liked my images... Which is all fair and well.

Thanks for posting this!

I signed up and did a search on my [link] .
I found it on a site that has a language I don't read or speak. I wonder how I can find out whether or not they're trying to sell it as it seems to be a site that sells things.

Looks like a place to sell animals -- someone may have used it as a picture of the cat they were trying to sell. Best guess, really.
